Programs + Classes

Come and Grow as You Please.

When you take a diverse group of brilliant people, put them in the middle of vast cultural and educational resources and ask them to think of fun, intellectually stimulating ways to spend their time, amazing things happen. Specifically, a huge number of opportunities to expand your mind, your talents and your circle of friends.  

Like the travel group that studied and visited Machu Picchu. The group that attends performances of the San Francisco Ballet. The weekly current events discussion chaired by a local college professor. The socially conscious group that knitted dozens of “Pink Power” knit caps and sold them for charity. The Channing House Players resident theater troupe. The Channing House resident chorus. Painting and drawing classes. Movies, plays, musical performances and lectures in our auditorium. As one of our residents put it, “If you’re bored here, you have to want to be bored.”
